"media buzz." we hope you'll like our facebook page where we answer your questions, we post videos. we're back here next sunday with the latest buzz. it is an historic day today because of the event that happened in 1987 -- 89. president reagan's stirring speech from '87 came true. he called for the berlin wall to come down and it did two years later. >> hello everyone. welcome to "america's news headquarters." >> and i'm eric shawn. [ cheers and applause ] >> as you can see the berlin wall coming down 25 years ago today. marking the unofficial end of the cold war between the united
states and the soviet union. now a generation later, they are celebrating. we're live with the latest. hi, greg. >> reporter: yeah, being marked right now in berlin, the 25th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall. truly one of the most historic moments in the recent past. a million people are crowding into the area where the wall stood, marking the wall's 9 mile loop, balloons. there have been celebrations, concerts, ceremonies. angela merkel saying that the fall of the wall shows us that dreams can come true. the moment was historic. it was the beginning of the end of the cold word. u.s. troops were stationed right there in west berlin as well as throughout germany. here is how one veteran remembered this moment. >> i don't have television. a friend called me.
i live way up in a mountains. i drove 20 miles to his house where he has television and i saw people dancing. >> dreams can come true for that man as well. the reformist leader of the soviet leader at the time has been in berlin this weekend. but he had a warning, saying that the world was on the brink of a new cold war, this time involving the current leader of a newly assertive russia. highlighted as we have been watching this past year. at this moment, though, people are just reliving the moment including many of us who were lucky enough to have been there. we knew then it was a bit of history, a lot of emotion and i might add, a little bit cold. also by the way, that was in fact the first assignment for
myself as a foreign correspondent and that's probably why i keep a small chunk of the berlin wall on my desk at all times. bablg to you. >> incredibly meaningful having that chunk obviously for all the people who have been freed. on this day, democracy and freedom finally freed millions who lives under the oh presentation of commune anything's. now we face new threats, isis, the challenge of our time. john bolten is a former ambassador to the united nations and a fox news contributor. can the stain of jihad and the philosophy of isis and the islamic state, do you think radical islamic terrorism can be turned back? >> i think it can if we pursue the right policies. what happened when the berlin wall feel and when the soviet union dissolved, were a reflection of sustained american
policies that really required tough moves, some hard decisions. but a continuous strong american preens in the world. the threat of islamic radicalism is different. but i think the response of the united states is critical. if we walk away from the struggle, if we say it's too far away, we'll find the problem here in the united states not far away from us. >> it seems sadly that it's only spreading and increasing around the globe, not receding like come nichl. >> it took a while, but the fall of the berlin wall show that a policy of american strength ultimately prevailed. not to have conflict but to prevent conflict and at the same time eliminate the threat. i'm afraid in recent years, notably the past six, we have been withdrawn. we can see now iran close to
nuclear weapons. the islamic state consolidating its power in the middle east. terrorist threats through most of north africa and the rest of the region. i think as long as america steps back from the conflict, our adversaries will conclude they have an open past. it's not just the threat of terrorism about vladimir putin using military force on the continent of europe to change international boundaries. something we hope in the cold war we could eliminate forever. >> that's absolutely astounding. gosh chof is saying we could have a new cold war with putin. putin has been expanding the new russia. how do we stop him? ask that possible? when you mention the last six years, obviously a message to the obama administration. >> right now, there's a shared
common perception in radical head quarters around the middle east that they face in the united states a weak and inattentive president. the calendar is just as easy for them to raze as it is for us. they see two more years of that. so i think the scope and the pace of challenges we're going to face will increase in the next two years. that's why it's critical we have a national debate on what america's proper presence in the world is. if people think our involvement protects us and therefore our way of life here at home, then i think it calls for a very different set of policies. we need to have that debate. in the balm administration, up until this past election took a backseat. i think we've seen that we cannot afford that. >> you talk about putin and his new aggression.
how about iran? that nuclear deadline is coming up. creditics say not at all. are you wored about what a potential deal could bring? >> i think the obama administration is so death operate for a deal, desperate to announce a victory diplomatically that they think he'll agree to almost anything. that does trouble me very much. rouhani was iran's chief nuclear negotiator ten years ago. he boasted of how he took the europeans to the cleaners, deceived them with fake halts in the program. and that negotiating strategy is working for him again. i'm very worried we'll be in a position where iran will get nuclear weapons and then so will many other countries in the
middle east taking this volatile region and making it more dangerous. that's how proliferation works. >> is the world better off now than it was 25 years akboe? go to berlin now. the former wall cut through where the marriott is. >> it was a huge success for the united states. a triumph for freedom around the world. new problems have arisen, they inevitably do. >> thank you for your insight on this historic day. okay. well, u.s.-led coalition forces bombing syria in the fight against isis. today's bombing follow a wave of even more intense air strikes in iraq yesterday. we're told coalition forces may have targeting a convoy of
high-rahigh high-ranking officials. we're live with the latest. connor? >> rumors have been swirling about the fate of the head of isis. they have reported he was both injured and killed, but it's not really clear what his actual fate is right now. the u.s. military says they did conduct a series of air strikes targeting senior leaders of isis near mosul. they believe he may have departed this group. but they can't confirm if he was part of this group. there simply isn't enough information or boots on the ground to get that type of intelligence. meanwhile shlgs violence across iraq and syria showing no signs of letting up. a series of explosions in iraq killed at least 43 people today. the ethnic kurds continue to battle militants.
pounding isis fighters today. a human rights monitoring group says more than a thour people have been killed in the past few months. and in a further sign that the war in iraq and syria is expanding against isis, the white house has authorized up to another 1,500 american troops there to iraq to help battle isis. that would bring the total number serving to 3,000. the coalition there growing both in american troops and in the number of international countries taking part in that coalition, arthel. >> thanks so much. two americans held captive in north korea are back home safely on u.s. soil today. they landed in washington state overnight. they were greeted with hugs from his mother and sister. understandably, he was very emotional upon his return.
>> thank you all for supporting me and standing by me through this time. it's been just amazing blessing to see so many people being involved. it's been amazing two years. i learn a lot. i grew a lot. lost a lot of weight in a good way. but i'm standing strong because of you. >> the two men were released through a secret mission headed up by james clapper himself. he is the director of national intelligence. >> well, with the 2016 run for the white house in sight, former president george w. bush makes a prediction about his brother's presidential plan saying there is a chance he will run for president. >> i think it's 50/50. he and i are very close on the
other hand he's not here knocking on my door agonizing about the decision. he knows exactly the ramifications on family. >> pundits say the former florida governor should be seen as a strong contender if he runs. and jeb bush has said the impact on his family is one of his top considerations. >> a new congress is on the way. but will the change change washington? republicans are gearing up to take the reigns of powers. will this finally mean an end to gridlock in washington or will there be more. plus, it is getting chilly out there today. we're going to tell you about the icy weather that's moving in. a bike ride. i didn't think i'd have a heart attack. but i did. i'm mike, and i'm very much alive. now my doctor recommends a bayer aspirin regimen to help prevent another heart attack. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an
air of the season so far. that arctic chill, it's about to spread. we're live with the details. >> i think we all should move to florida or the southwest next week. take me with you, will you? >> i will. >> this surface temperatures on wednesday. the blue here is below freezing. the pink is below zero. already it's going to feel like mid-january instead of mid-november. february, we're feeling this chill all the way as far south as the gulf coast. that's going to linger into next weekend and the following week. not just a quick cold snap. this is going to last for at least a week. the coldest air of the season. in some cases we're going to break records. 40 degrees below average in billings. 31 in omaha. yes, 20 to 40 degrees below average for a lot of folks. tulsa, 37 for you.
30 in amarillo. and the real core of the cold air is going to be across the central u.s. and of course, if we see any storms, that's going to mean an all snow event. so we're watching a new storm form across the rockies bringing 12 to 18 inches of snowfall from the northern rockies through to the great lakes. minneapolis, watching you. this is our latest snowfall map. we need you to be prepared for perhaps blizzard-like conditions and plowable snow. see this area here, 6 to 12, even 12 inches plus as we head into wednesday for all of these cities across the upper midwest and the great lakes. this is the first big snowfall of the season. it's coming early in the season. he's minneapolis as we drop into the 02s here. so a little too cold a little
too soon. that heavy snow is possible. we're going to see this move down south and eastward. across new york city again, dropping substantially and lingering through the weekend and even into the following week. i think it's coming a little early unfortunately. >> we'll have to start snuggling a little early. >> great silver lining. let's snuggle all across the country. i love it. >> see you later. >> that's a way to look at the bright side. first, they were hit by super storm sandy, but now they're told they have to repay the feds thousands of dollars in aid money. they have gone to emergency shelters after the store instead of hotels. fema has ruled that the money was only supposed to be used for temporary housing. fema says that money mub repaid.
a legal aid group says it will help them appeal. we now know the identity of the navy s.e.a.l. who killed osama bin laden. we have the exclusive television interview with him. we first made contact with o'neal. now you can hear firsthand about the raid that finally killed the most wanted terrorist. a two-night special beginning on veteran's day this tuesday at 10:00 p.m. eastern. >> looking forward to that. the republican win this week means some big changes on capitol hill. will a gop-led congress be able to find common ground with president obama. next, we'll talk to a newly elected congresswoman about what she expects. i'm not juice or fancy water. i've got 8 grams of protein. new ensure active clear protein. 8 grams protein. zero fat.

well, the voters have spoken and now republicans are getting ready to lead both houses of congress. the president met with top leaders on friday and talked about issues that both sides may be able to come to terms on. corey gardner says it's time for the parties to show they can work together. >> it's about putting those things on the president's desk that have broad bipartisan support. let's start with fist the keystone pipeline. let's show we can do it with republicans and democrats and prove to the american people that washington learned its lesson. >> joining us now is barbara come stock. first of all, congratulations. >> thank you. good morning. >> let's start here.
let's pick up there. what did your constituents tell you they would like you to take to washington in the form of progress, unlocking the gridlock and of course policy? >> well, they want us to focus on jobs and getting the economy turned around. so exactly the kind of things you just heard senator elect gardner talk about. in virginia, we want to see offshore drilling. that's a great way to get more affordable energy and more jobs. in virginia we have legislation set up already that that would go toward transportation funding. those are things that have broad buy partisan support. and then i think having tax reform on that medical device tax. repealing that certainly is a good start. and looking at things like a research and development tax credit. we need to pass one on the
federal level. it has broad bipartisan support. you have a lot of legislation going through the house and not getting anywhere in the senate because of harry reid. and i think the president will hear from a lot of people who want to have those kind of solutions. >> speaking of the president, i want to play a sound bite from him and we'll talk about it on the other side. >> if you don't do it, i've got legal authority to make improvements on the system. i'd prefer and still prefer to see it done through congress. but every day that i wait, we're misallocating resources. >> here's the question, should lawmakers wait for the new congress before moving on immigration? if so, is there a proposal that can be drafted that would stave off executive action by the president by the end of the year? >> well, i think this certainly
has to be done by congress not by executive order. the people have spoken. they want the congress to be engaged. they want us to be involved. you have to have congress involved. i think what we need to do is a step by step process. people don't trust what's been going on. so you need to rebuild that trust. that applies for any legislation. the president shouldn't be doing things by executive order. he should be engaging the congress and working together and finding those bipartisan solutions. >> do you think he'll wait? >> i haven't talked -- i don't know what the president's plans are, but i think there is certainly a strong bipartisan consensus that he should work with congress regardless of whether you're a democrat or republican. i think we all feel that that needs to be a process that the congress is involved. >> again, congratulations. you like the sound of that,
right? >> thank you. that sounds nice. appreciate it. i look forward to serving my great district in virginia. >> we will be right back with "sunday housecall." by 1914 the dodge brothers quit the ford motor company and set out on their own. they believed in more, than the assembly line. they believed driving was a holy endeavor. a hundred years later the dodge brothers spirit lives on.
bringing new meaning to the word partnership. banking. loyalty. analytics. synchrony financial. enagage with us. hello. i'm arthel neville. time now for "sunday housecall." >> hi, everyone. i'm eric shawn and welcome. joining us, dr. marc siegel. >> and dr. david samadi. chairman and professor of urology and chief of robotic surgery. good to see you. >> we start with a very important issue. this happens to be a new study on colon cancer. turns out the number of cases in people older than 50 is
